How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your garden ready plug plants in plug trays in a box. These are designed to keep your plants secure and to prevent damage in transit.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you aren't able to plant your plugs up straight away then ensure they stay moist. You can place your plugs on a saucer or tray of shallow water so they are able to stay hydrated. Aim to have your plugs planted within 3 days.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in containers: Sprinkle a layer of stone or gravel in the bottom of the container to aid drainage. Use a high-quality young plant or general-purpose compost space the plugs evenly with enough space to allow the plants to grow. Mix in a slow-release granular fertiliser in the compost before planting to provide plenty of nutrients. Water thoroughly once planted up. Continue to water every 3-5 days and don't allow the container to dry out.

Planting in the ground:  Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant, if your soil is heavy mix in general-purpose compost, horticultural sand and stone or potting grit to ensure good drainage. Gently compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

Feeding and aftercare: Foxgloves are woodland plants and prefer a site in dappled shade with moist, fertile soil. Cut back faded flower stems to a flowering side shoot. In autumn, cut all the flowerstems down to ground level. The Dalmatian range will flower in the first year after sowing, and will self-seed freely in the right conditions. To allow plants to self-seed, allow the flowers to dry out completely and set seed before removing.
